Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs caught four of six targets for 83 yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. After an up-and-down regular season, the second-year receiver showed up in the playoffs, gaining 234 yards on 10 receptions and being a favorite target for quarterback Jordan Love. The Packers have a number of impressive rookie wide receivers that showed up this season and plenty of mouths to feed around the entire offense, including 2022 first-round draft selection Christian Watson. Doubs will always face stiff competition for targets, but it speaks volumes that when everyone was healthy during this playoff run, he was one of his quarterback's favorite targets.

Los Angeles Chargers rookie wide receiver Quentin Johnston made two catches against the Kansas City Chiefs backups in Week 18 to finally and mercifully end his tough rookie season. Johnston, who was drafted in the first round, ended up making just 38 catches for 431 yards and two touchdowns all year. In Week 18, he turned five targets into two catches for 17 yards. He'll be back for the 2024 season with a whole new coach and (likely) offensive coordinator, so it will be interesting to see if they will be able to turn around one of the biggest busts of the 2023 draft.
